Human Rights lawyer Femi Falana San has barred his mind on why he thinks it is not rational for the police to round up Yoruba human rights activist Sunday Igboho for issuing a quit notice for Fulani Herdsmen to leave Oyo State.
Sunday Igboho had issued a quit notice asking all Fulani Herdsmen to vacate Igangan, Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Earlier on, Femi Falana had said Sunday Igboho lacked the constitutional rights to evict the Fulani herdsmen from the South Western States describing the actions of Sunday Igboho as illegal and unconstitutional.
However, Speaking as a guest on Punch Online's 'Round Table, Femi Falana explained that the police lacked the right to arrest Sunday Igboho because similar threats had been issued by others in the north and were not arrested.
Falana insisted that there was no way the police could choose who to arrest in matters of this nature, since Almajiris, beggars and destitutes had been deported from different part of the country but the police never made any arrest.
Sunday Igboho rose to fame as a Yoruba human rights activist after the quit notice he gave to Fulani Herdsmen to vacate Igangan, and at the expiration of his ultimatum, he went to the area to address his fans.
The Inspector General of Police had since issued his arrest but the arrest has never been executed.
